You are responsible for information you supply in an insurance application and will likely answer many questions from a sales agent when applying for a policy. You are responsible for the information on the application; make sure that your answers are true and accurate.
An insurer has the right to deny a claim if the insured fails to uphold his or her obligations under the policy, if a claim is for something not covered by the policy or if the insured makes a fraudulent claim.
If an insurer breaches its duty to act in good faith when handling an insurance claim, the insured may recover any damages proximately caused by the breach. Typical damages in a bad faith action include the benefits of the policy and consequential losses and damages suffered due to claim denial.
No. An insurer’s duty to defend is assessed at the outset of a case. If it is subsequently determined that there was no coverage at the time of the incident giving rise to the claim, an insurer may withdraw from representation.
